The Shakespeare Schools Festival hails from the United Kingdom as an additional education program aimed at improving language and social skills through the performing arts. SSF Southern Africa is Educape’s flagship project, piloted in 2010 by Kseniya Filinova-Bruton with the objective of revealing the link between the arts and education. Each year the festival encourages schools to perform abridged ’30 min’ versions of Shakespearean plays in local professional theatres. The festival is non-competitive, providing a platform of equal opportunity where there are no boundaries to participation.
